Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta
George Town, Malaysia 10450
Number of balloons: 16
Year began: 2015
Here’s another chance for you to float above Padang Polo (Polo Ground) in Penang on a huge hot air balloon. Held on the 9th and 10th day of Chinese New Year, be sure to mark your calendars!
What better way to celebrate this festivity with your family and friends. There’ll be loads of fun and excitement in store for all ages from 7am to 9.30pm on both days. Not to be missed are 16 colourful hot air balloons displayed during the morning and evening sessions.
Ticketed tethered balloon rides will be available on first-come first-served basis, where one can go up as high as 60 feet . Each night, a ‘Night Glow’ show will feature 10 balloons lighted up with music and lights to fascinate spectators. There’ll also be the ‘Cold Inflation’ activity, where you can walk into a balloon envelope that’s filled with cold air as it lies on the ground. Additionally, family friendly activities as well as F&B stalls will be available throughout the event.
To ease traffic during the event days, shuttle buses will be provided from three different points on the island to Padang Polo: Jetty - KOMTAR, Tesco Tanjung Tokong, Queensbay Mall - Sungai Nibong (bus stop in front of PESTA)
